Food Fight! is a licensed traditional fighting game featuring mascots of various food brands and fast food chains.
Every Food Fight is divided into three different rounds called "Picnics". There are three styles of combat, though every match will only two as one will be repeated. As with most traditional fighting games, one of these styles of combat places players on a single plane, where they can travel forwards and backwards only. The second style takes place in a circular area, where fighters can travel freely within the permitted area. Finally, the third style combines the two other styles, in which fighters exist in a three-dimensional arena but can only travel along eight different planes, which may be switched between at will in order to dodge attacks.
In-battle, fighters can summon assistants once they empty their Hunger meter, which is done by dealing damage. An assist can be summoned three times during a single round, at which point the Hunger meter will never empty.
